Countdown To MKX Release - 63 Days
10/08/2014 07:05 PM EST
I figured this would be a cute little countdown thread for all of us. I guess every day I'll ask a question while showing you how long til we get the game. Keep checking the first post of this thread to see the questions!

Torture, I know.


So, first question:

Third Question:

What Mortal Kombat game is your all-time favorite?

Fourth Question:

What is your favorite mini game?

Fifth Question:

What is your favorite arena?

Sixth Question:

What is your favorite stage fatality? (Death traps don't count)

Seventh Question:

You are fighting Goro, you, yourself, and the object to your left is the only weapon you can use against him. What is that object?

Eighth Question:

Create a fatality for your LEAST favorite character.

Ninth Question:

If you can ask Ed Boon anything, what would you ask him? It could be absolutely nothing about Mortal Kombat.

Tenth Question:

Does Ermac really exist?

Eleventh Question:

If you can finally end the rivalry, who would be the ultimate victor, Scorpion or Sub-Zero?

Twelfth Question:

Seventeenth Question:

What game has the best soundtrack?

Eighteenth Question:

Nineteenth Question:

Would you like to see an art book showcasing every piece of art from this series? (Most likely be titled "The Art of Mortal Kombat" or something)

Twentieth Question:

You can only pick ONE: Brutalities, Friendships, or Babalities?

Twenty-First Question:

Out of all the characters that got killed in 2011, what ONE character should come back to life?

The adventure games brought us interesting characters as bosses and such, out of all the adventure games we got, what character that has yet to be introduced in the fighting games should make their debut finally?

Twenty-Third Question:

Do you want Shujinko's story to still happen (him finding the Komidogus and such)?

Twenty-Fourth Question:

Are you dressing up as any Mortal Kombat characters for Halloween?

Twenty-Fifth Question:

Would you like to see a new realm come about?

Twenty-Sixth Question:

Since we've been told the boss of this game is going to be a "surprised returnee," would you like to see another returning character be a boss for a future game, or do you think it's time we get a brand new boss?

Twenty-Seventh Question:

You have Tanya, Reiko and Fujin being the three most wanted MK4 characters (at least from what I've seen). You can only pick ONE that will NOT appear in this game, even as a cameo.

Which ONE of these would you like to see come true?

Thirty-Fifth Question:

We know that Sareena has a demonic forum that we have yet to see. Would you rather have that forum be playable or just be shown in cutscenes? This also applies to other characters that has this forum.

Forty-Eighth Question:

Kira or Jerek, you must pick ONE to have redemption.

Forty-Ninth Question:

You find yourself up against the Deadly Alliance, they allow you to have a partner to even out the match, but your only choices are: Mokap or Meat (Armageddon version, not MK4), who would you choose and why?

Fiftieth Question:

Sheeva may not be a fan favorite, if she isn't one of those you like, how would you change her? (Saying, "By not being in the game at all" is not an option)

Add a few days to that if you live anywhere but North America ;(
Hopefully it's a worldwide release date which seems to be popular these days, even though Tuesday seems like the most random day to release games to me.

I THINK my first character I played as was Sonya, I first played MK1 on the SNES and I've always gravitated towards female characters, even as a 5 year old, so Sonya is a good probability.

I know the first game I ever played in the series was MK2 on the snes at my aunt's house. I remember that's the game I would always play when I visited during the summer. So my first MK game was when I was like 4, and at 22, I'm still going strong with my MK fandom.

I wanna say the first character I played with was either Kitana or Mileena. I remember always choosing them, so I think it would've been one of those two. My Mileena fandom has decreased after what happened to her in MK9, but I still love Kitana.

P.S. the last game I ever played was Mortal Kombat 1. That was about 4years ago.

No clue, as I was 3-4 when I first played MK1 at a neighbors house with my older brothers. (we later moved when I was 4 1/2-5)

However, I remember staring at the select screen pictures, being fascinated by the backgrounds of the fighter's select screen pictures. Which brings up the question, why aren't those still created anymore? Instead, we get a generic gradient...

My first was Motor Kombat Sub-Zero in Armageddon when I was only 9.

Yeah, I got a bad start. Especially since I only knew of Kreate-A-Kharacter and Motor Kombat. I had no idea you could fight until I sold my PS2 and later got an Xbox360. From there, I got MK9 Komplete Edition and finally realized.

Scorpion or Sub Zero on a MK1 arcade machine at the roller rink kinda near my house when I was like 4 or 5. Even when our moms didn't give us quarters me and my friend Zach would post up at the machine watching people play or just watching the computer fight itself and hope to God for a fatality. Or we'd desperately try to figure out what the little character bios said. It was very mysterious and exciting to me as a kid, I was fascinated, that feeling will forever be associated with MK.

I'm pretty sure I played as Scorpion in MK1 at the water park.

Was an awesome day of checking out girls in bikinis, seeing boobies, playing on all the water slides, and having my 13-year old mind blown at seeing MK1 for the very first time in the arcades. That spear, all that blood, those upper cuts...I was so hooked, and I've been hooked ever since.
